Kenny Bania…..greatest guest character in Seinfeld history!
Bania sure knew GOLD when he saw it, and I think the residents of the few remaining houses on Kenaston Gardens must see the pile that they’re sitting on right now…
God, I loved Kenny Bania!
“I’ve been working out – I went from a forty to a forty-two. I know, I’m huge!”
“Jerry, have you worn the suit yet?”
“I wanna go to Mendy’s, Jerry!”
“I’m not that hungry, I’ll just save my meal for next time.”
“He makes the best soup in the city, Jerry. The best!”
“Puke….that’s a funny word. Can I use that?”
But the greatest line of all has always been, “That’s gold, Jerry! GOLD!”
Kenny Bania was able to recite a speech on risk management, actually intended for George as he spoke to a room-full of suits, and win over the crowd at a comedy club with it!
Bania took nothing and made it into something.
He truly made it into gold.
Owners of these crummy, tired houses on Kenaston Gardens are sitting on a gold mine of their own.
Over the last decade, countless condominiums have been built around them and they continue to stay put. They’ve probably been approached by a dozen developers who are looking for more land in the area, and yet they remain in their sixty-year-old, sidesplit houses.
What will it take to get them out?
How long will they hold out for more money?
Their houses are worthless but their properties are pure gold. Those houses might be worth $450,000 on the open market but could net them millions from Daniels Corp, Concord Adex, or Tridel.
Mark my words – come back to that street three years from now, and all of those houses will be gone…
